Copyright / Music for ingame records

Hello Space Engine Fans,

First of all i'd like to thank the community and of course Vladimir Romanyuk for their awesomeness.

I've been trying to record some space trips and sharing them on youtube, but i'm experiencing copyright troubles for some "ingame" music tracks.
So i'm comin here to ask if anyone got an answer about i should manage it.
- Wishing i could keep the original tracks of Space Engine.
- Should I just leave those awesome musics outside of my footage.

Thx for reading

Fair use of material is a grey area governed by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). You can hire a lawyer to translate it into English. Claiming "Fair use" is really a last ditch effort to not break the law. You might be able to use copyrighted material if it is for non-profit, but that doesn't mean YouTube won't put ads over your video. It might make a difference if you are only using a portion of the music. It might matter that SE is not commercially sold, but having that song out there might affect SE's potential market value, which YouTube doesn't want to be responsible for. Best bet is to use YouTube's own royalty free library of music tracks and add that to your video. Or even better yet, get a license from the makers of the music in SE saying you can use it. A note saying "Yeah, it's ok" in a forum won't cut it. You must contact them directly and pay. One final option is to distort the music so that it is not detected by their tracking system called ContentID, by either changing the speed or adding a filter to it such as a voice synth. I'm sure you knew all this already. This message will self destruct in 10 minutes.

Doesn't Space Engine allow their music to be used freely on YouTube? Surely, they know people put videos of their sessions on YouTube!

Does youtube blocks out SE music? On which reason? That music is not copyrighted, it belongs to its authors. Maybe if you add a mark: "Music - SpaceEngine soundtrack" they will accept it.

It does, I've made a video using SE music and I received a Copyright Claim.

I was also sure this music was not copyrighted (free to use with non-commercial products?), but maybe YouTube monetization does violates the copyright licence.

It might be free to use music, but not music you can use for anything else which is why it is claimed.  Creative commons doesn't mean copyright free.
